Abstract

The relationship between occlusion, Orthodontics and temporomandibular disorders have been subject of discussions and controversies. In the past, the scientific literature stated that the temporomandibular disorders occurred due to the malocclusion, and, for its correction, an orthodontic treatment should be performed. Apparently, those theories have become obsoletes, and according to more consistent scientific articles, the relationship among these entities have been questioned. This literature review shows a possible change in the paradigm of the relationship among the three entities.
